There are a variety of academic programs such as academic team, math and counts. Music, and art are available for 7-8th graders and p.e. is mandatory. Thesports offered here are volleyball, cheering, basketball, track, and cross country. Parent invovlement is good, as we have a PTSA at Truman Middle School.

I have been very impressed with this school. Last year, my son was dealing with a bully and the school made all necessary changes to help my son feel safe. Several teachers even volunteered to be 'There for my son.' This made him feel important and gave him the security he needed as a seventh grader. I appreciate this partnership with the staff at Truman Middle School, and look forward to volunteer work there myself.

In 2013-2014 Missouri used the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math and communication arts, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The MAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Missouri. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
